to france and the united kingdom. according to a bloomberg report out today on the short list for both is anna wintour. the very influential editor in chief of "vogue" magazine since 1998. now, she has been criticized for a demanding personality but she has been praised for keeping "vogue" relevant in the ever-changing world of fashion for almost 25 years. she's a lion in her business. but that's probably not the reason she's being considered for the jobs. ambassadorships are increasingly used as rewards for top level political supporters and anna wintour was a very good political bundler, financial bundler for president obama during his campaign. she hosted two fund-raising dinners this summer at $40,000 a plate. the president appreciates that sort of thing. politicians do. he's already appointed other big backers to top posts. in 2009, telecom executive donald gibbs got south africa. investment banker louis sussman, the united kingdom. and the pittsburgh steelers chairman dan rooney got ireland. it's not just this president. over the years, the number of people who donated their time

yet. scott, i have a question for you. just noticed today france and germany's stock markets hit 52-week highs. we're still wringing our hands over the debt crisis, and the equity markets are hitting new highs for the year. is it too late to get into those markets? >> i don't think so, bill, at all. all the european markets are up for the year except portugal, which is up slightly. even greece is up year to date. i don't think you're too late on that trade at all. in fact, i think, quite frankly, the structural changes that are happening in europe could produce growth for many years come. >> where are you putting money to work, george? >> the fiscal cliff is sort of the uncertainty du jour. people are always worried about next uncertainty. you need to blow past that and think about where the next good stocks going to be, how can i invest, how can i participate? taxes are likely to go up, but this is a lot of rattling. both sides of the aisle would come together. they'll figure out what's best. at the end of the day, they know they have to help the little guy, the consumer. pool corp
